A woman wearing the Prince Pickleball Zip-Front Pleated Dress.

As you may have heard, tennis is back in a big way this season (mostly thanks to Zendaya and her buzzy new movie Challengers), as is the uber-popular craze that is pickleball. Different though they may be, the two court sports do have one thing in common: a preppy-chic aesthetic most recently dubbed "tenniscore," which you can find in droves in Target's newest Prince sports collection. The stylish new launch is stacked with everything from on-trend pickleball skirts to dresses and accessories to seriously level-up your game, and they all come in at less than $50.

Not familiar with Prince? Target says the brand has been "defining the look, lifestyle and performance of racquet sports both on and off the court [since 1970.]" Needless to say, if you want to ace the tenniscore fashion trend this time around, you should snag this pickleball zip-front pleated dress ($40) and this fun and functional water bottle sling ($15) ASAP, because I have a sneaking suspicion they won't stay in stock for long.

If there's any piece from this new collection that'll have you serving major Zendaya vibes, it's this pleated dress. Just hear one buyer out: "This looks so high quality! The fabric feels expensive, and the color is beautiful. It's not white—closer to a light beige/cream color. The only downside is no bra, but I just put some cakes on, and I was good to go." In other words, the performance-minded frock (made of polyester and spandex) gives higher-end options a run for their money. It also has a back mesh panel and a high neck with a quarter zip for optimal breathability while you get your workout in. So, like I said, it won't stay in stock for long...

Tenniscore-meets-eclectic grandpa in this retro cable-knit cardigan, which buyers say has the perfect mid-weight feel for summer thanks to its 100 percent cotton knit. One reviewer adds that the sweater maintains its shape and doesn't stretch out, so you can really wear it on repeat if you want to (and I imagine you will). If you're like me, though, you'll be won over by the contrasting striped trim and the slightly cropped length (which, however, can be avoided by sizing up). As for the V-neck cut? I'll just say it takes the cardigan's sporty sophistication to the next level. Ob-sessed.

Behold, your new go-to accessory for summer. This cute water bottle sling supposedly accommodates a range of water bottle sizes, so you should have no problem fitting your favorite cup in it to wear across your body with the adjustable sling strap. "It's quite big," one reviewer explains. "[It] will hold an Owala 32-ounce bottle and [have] some room for a snack on walks." Thanks to its neoprene and polyester materials, it also wipes clean easily, so it should stay looking good for many tennis and pickleball matches to come.
